An Author's Blogging Resource
Have you heard; Author websites are the business cards of the publishing business? If you haven’t heard that it’s going to be hard for you to finish reading this info from under that rock.
Anyway, you’ve heard that because it’s true. But a pretty site isn’t enough to turn your adoring readers into fans. To do that your site must be interactive so they will want to return again and again.
But how do you do that?
Start a blog
Blogging is a way to write about whatever you’re passionate about. Some authors write about romance but blog about cooking. Others write about crime but blog about guns, crime prevention, detectives, and so on. You see the point. Or, did you recently read a great new book? Blog about it! Start a conversation by asking your readers to respond to a specific question. It’s your own personal cocktail lounge (or tea party) so make your guests feel comfortable, and encourage them to participate.
Though there are no rules in blogging, there are some standard expectations and things your readers may want to know;
Remember; EVERY SITE OR BLOG NEEDS A CALL TO ACTION!
Keep these things in mind as you write your blog posts each week, or month.
Remember; By becoming a blogger, you’ll have the ability to connect with your readers while building a platform.
